Press Release: Hands-On Creative Jazz Art Workshop
The Richmond Art Center announces its free, annual Jazz Art event on Saturday, February 21, 2015 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm.
A creative and festive afternoon is planned for the whole family to create art while listening to improvisational jazz music played by acclaimed musicians India Cooke and Don Robinson. This hands-on art-making event is led by Lisa di Prima, the artistic director for the Berkeley Jazz Art Program, and is perfect for everyone in your family to get in the groove and express yourselves by drawing, painting or collaging.
All ages; children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Throughout the year, the Richmond Art Center hosts a series of free family events — Jazz Art (February); Upcycle (April); Skeletonfest (October) — to celebrate Richmond’s diverse and creative community. These events allow children and the whole family to learn about and explore cultural traditions through special art activities, exhibitions, storytelling, artists and performers.
